Week two of the NFL pre-season is approaching, with only Monday night’s Falcons-Jets competition remaining on the agenda. That means we’re halfway through the full gallery slate, and about a week away from the final cuts on the roster. Real games around the corner. But which players and teams have taken clear steps in the right (or wrong) direction this week?
Here are our biggest winners and losers from Week Two of the 2022 pre-season events:
The Cowboys She already had excellent offensive weapons in CeeDee Lamb, Dalton Schultz and Tony Pollard. But they may have to find a way to include Turpin, too, after the minor league veteran and last USFL star scored not once but twice in a rematch in Dallas’ win over chargers. Even if it was just a kick or kick return, he probably booked a spot on the list.
Speaking of offensive weapons in the NFC East, it looks like Gibson really is losing his grip on leadersTop run back function. The former rising star, now entering his third year, has rotated teams two and three teams in training recently. against the headsstood on the sidelines as rookie Brian Robinson Jr. started on the field, then totaling just two campaigns as he relegated to return assignments.
The Pittsburgh product has always been a fan favorite in SteelersQB competition, but he was decisive and unfazed in a limited action against Jaguarmaking the case with a smooth paced record drive that he deserves real consideration as a first-week starter over Mitchell Trubesky, who is more experienced but perhaps not the most talented.
Not all of the AFC youth had a good weekend, and Rosen will be the first to admit it after completing only seven of the 20’s throws against the team. the EaglesReporters third. On both his career interruptions, his shot to get the Browns’ No. 3 QB assignments behind Deshaun Watson and Jacoby Brissett largely failed after Joshua Dobbs showed an effective arm and extended play movement to keep the Cavs competitive.
Winner: Running game
If you played pre-season fantasy football with their Series 2 and 3 debuts this week, congratulations. The Invoices rolled all over Bronco By posting every member of the Deep Backfield: Devin Singletary, Zach Moss, James Cook and Duke Johnson. The Eagles steadily exploded from Boston Scott and Kenny Jenwell with Miles Sanders absent. The blackThe trio of Justin Jackson, Craig Reynolds, and Goodwin Eguibwick combined for over 100 yards against ponies. Who said the Earth game is dead?
Being hurt isn’t necessarily his fault, but the star saints The receiver is trying to get back on the field for the first time since 2020, and two days after being knocked out for his second straight pre-season game, he missed training with a hamstring problem. All while first-round rookie Chris Olaf continues to climb up the standings and approaches 2022 as the likely number one target for New Orleans.
No one expects a third-round rookie to be a polished lane at this point in his career, so just watching his wattage as a jammer and an occasional side shooter should be enough to tempt titans Fans are running out of patience with Ryan Tanehill under center. No, Willis isn’t about to take over at QB, but you can see, after his movement and arm angles vs. pirateWhy Tennessee Stopped His Fall On Enlistment Day.

Loser: Cliff Kingsbury
I’m just kidding. Or are we? The basics The coach has jokingly let his QB, Kyler Murray, try playing on the calls this summer since Murray gave him a tough time on offense management. But once Murray took up the headset late in Arizona’s pre-season loss crowsCards offense was decidedly more effective, even threatening to come back after landing the option that was triggered by backup Trace McSorley. Now let’s see if Kliff abdicates when it matters.
Winner: Probably Isaiah
Looking for a sleeper who is likely to have more impact on this year’s crow attack than anticipated? A man likely to secure some red zone targets from Lamar Jackson? And maybe it’s also possible to share the footage with Mark Andrews? We probably can’t get enough after the fourth rookie exploded with eight catches for 100 yards and a touchdown in front of the Cardinals, to constantly find or create space against the Arizona defense.
